green sprung spine

a green sprung spine.
one end jammed down
a stick stuck fast,
one end caught up

feel the spine-whip bulge, bend, ache


lay down in a lake
drift until the swell lifts
where the spine slides green under
sink your hands back under – feel
for the ripple running through – feel
for the wind raised wave
that may lift you,
may tip you,
may just
reinstate you.
